Remote Challenge on Climate Change

Wednesday, 01.04. - Thursday, 02.04.2020 · 9.30 a.m.- 6 p.m.

About the Challenge:

Solar wind and volcanic activity were formative external influences on our climate in the first millennium AD. They still play an important role in understanding climate change today. Even today, they play an important role in understanding climate change. In this Remote Challenge, you will help Sebastian Wagner from Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht to explore how these solar and volcanic activities are represented in climate models. Learn more about the challenge and the data here.
